“The John Coltrane Quartet (John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones) en 1963, el el programa de televisión Jazz Casual, interpretando Alabama. During a time when ractism was on a high, John Coltrane wrote this song while watching medical examiners wheel the bodies of four little girls out of a Birmingham church on a Sunday morning. They were attending Sunday School and were blown to pieces by a bomb set by the kkk. Perhaps that’s why these piece has a blues or “dead” feeling. But if you are looking for the same joyous, upbeat tempo of Giant Steps your listening to the wrong piece and probably don’t understand Trane.” Source: Big Poppa
